For now, says Smith, the relationship between the DVTel software and SAI system is a lot like the Microsoft Office suite of programs, where data can move seamlessly from MS Word to Powerpoint to Excel and elsewhere. A door opens and the video links to it. Cameras are synched with an intrusion alarm. A card is used and the video system can zoom in to tell the monitoring agent whether it's actually Joe Smith or whether it's someone who has borrowed or stolen his access card. The possibilities, says Smith, are almost endless, especially as the video and access data start to live on an IP-standardized system.
